James D. Vaughan (1864–1941)


Since your child­hood
You have heard the won­drous sto­ry
Of the Christ who gave His life on Cal­v’ry’s tree;
How for you He left His Fa­ther’s home in glo­ry,
Bore the cross that you from sin might be made free.


Do you know Him? know my Sav­ior?
Do you know His won­drous love and migh­ty pow­er?
If you knew Him as I know Him,
You would make my Sav­ior yours this ve­ry hour.

Just to know my pre­cious Sav­ior is to love Him,
I have al­ways found Him lov­ing, con­stant, true;
There’s no other friend so great but He’s above him,
What my Sav­ior is to me He’ll be to you.


Sinner, will you learn to know my pre­cious Sav­ior?
In His love is re­fuge safe from all alarms;
Come to Him, and you will share His bless­èd fa­vor
In the shel­ter of His ev­er­last­ing arms.
